For 3 years now, I’ve been (and still am) a happy parent. I remember vividly the day my daughter was born. It was the happiest day of my life!
Aurora is a sweet girl, my first child. She likes books, dinosaurs, toy cars, jigsaw puzzles, various games with colors, as well as playing outdoors.
Little did I realize how stressful would a parenting be when a child turns 3. You have to be on the watch. Every. Second. And answer questions!
Love, happiness, fear, stress, tiredness - everything interconnects in such a way it might overwhelm you. And still, you'd never wish to reverse things.
Giving is a key to being a good parent. You have to give your love, your support, your knowledge, your time. You don’t take anything, you only give.
Using this significant date to me as an opportunity to give something to the community as well, I would like to invite everyone to my party train.
You can punch your tickets here. There are 6 stations overall.
Stay vigilant, it’s an important skill you’ll have to exercise upon becoming a parent. Rain may fall, guys, if you know what I mean (I hope you do; always keep boots for a rainy day - kids love those.) Good luck!

UPDATE 1. To find something that is hidden one must boldly go to a place that is not hidden.
UPDATE 2. Don’t overthink it, there is no sophisticated deciphering involved; only a riddle with some kind of literature device to solve.

Happy birthday to little Aurora and thanks for the mini-train! :)

Those are some great parenting advice as well. I'm looking forward to being a parent myself and I'm sure they will come in handy soon :P

Happy 3rd birthday to your daughter. I have a nephew that's about to be two and they are just adorable at that age until they go into tantrum mode. Just gotta take the rough with the smooth. :)

Thanks! Yes, tantrums can be very stressful and you cannot avoid them. You have to exercise patience more than ever.

I don't want anyone to feel frustrated, so if someone needs an additional hint (or rather if someone wants to know if they are on the right track), you can hit me in Steam Chat before it all ends.

No frustrated but no clue. No problem.

The important thing is that our children (yours and mine) grow up well.
I feel the same as you about being a father.

Happy birthday to Aurora (great name!)

Thanks! It's funny that I actually wrote you a story about her name in a different discussion before I even read this comment. :)

I passed by on the other thread and commented...
And you had just replied here so you were on top and I wanted to pass my best wishes to Aurora :)

And besides, your nickname ringed a bell. Being much active lately on some thread I usually check

Thanks! Although a week has passed, it is still pleasant to get some birthday greetings. I tell Aurora there are many people who send her happy birthday from across the world when we study a beautiful magnetized jigsaw puzzle map of the world that she received on her birthday. :)

Thank you everyone for participation and your kind wishes! I have already sent all the games. There is only one thing left to do - to explain how the puzzle worked (for those who want to know.)

Firstly, there is an acrostic and some other clue in the text about what game I was giving away in the secret GA - it was Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Secondly, there are bolded words, "my first child" and "Rain" (with the capital letter!) The former is a metaphor for my first GA here (thus "one must boldly go to a place that is not hidden"), while "Rain" is an additional hint for it as my first GA was Kathy Rain; the latter also serves as a (sort of) red herring, because the true riddle was hidden in the first bolded phrase. Finally, there is a 5-digit code in the description of my first GA on SG, you can still find it there. With it, you can put together a link to the puzzle GA.
